Insect Migrationby Liz Oram, R. Robin Baker
Insect migrations can be as short as a few inches or as long as thousands of miles. Locusts migrate thousands of miles in swarms so vast they can take an hour to pass by. The Monarch butterfly migrates from Canada to Mexico, a distance of 1,800 miles each year. This book explores migrations of varying lengths & styles that take place in the backyard as well as those covering hundreds of miles from one continent to another. Insects discussed include the caterpillar, honeybee, female hunting wasp, army ants, aphids, leafhoppers, butterflies, dragonflies, moths, & locusts. Illustrated with color photos. Baker is a zoologist & an authority on migration.
